Lance Stroll's accident and injury ahead of F1 pre-season testing in Bahrain has been treated with secrecy by the Aston Martin team.
The Canadian was ruled out of testing altogether and reserve driver Felipe Drugovich has been confirmed to race at the Bahrain Grand Prix, if the team are unable to get Stroll fit enough in time.
When asked about the nature of the incident, or the injuries sustained, Aston Martin were reluctant to comment, but details of the incident have started to emerge.
Spanish sources who live close to the alleged accident site have informed RacingNews365 that the incident occurred in Mijas, Malaga.
The source alleges that after a brief visit to Xanit Hospital in Benalmadena, he went to Clinica Dexeus in Barcelona, where he was treated by Doctor Xavier Mir, who is known to be a favoured surgeon of MotoGP riders.
The same source also believed that the injury was sustained to Stroll's right hand and wrist, and hypothesised that 'light' surgery could keep Stroll out of the first one or two races.
When RacingNews365 approached Aston Martin for comment, the team confirmed that they would be issuing an update on Stroll's progress in due course.
